In November of 2016, when I heard there was a bus going from Toronto to D.C., I knew immediately that I needed to be on it. 

I'm a biracial woman who grew up in northern Ontario (in the Soo!). I've called myself a feminist my entire life and found my place in the social justice world while studying psychology at Carleton University. One, let's call it "enlightening", semester of courses at Carleton included: psychology of womenwomen in modern Christian traditions and psychology of black women. I've has been a chapter leader for Lean In since 2015 and for Hacking Health since 2016. 

Today, after two now-annual Women's Marches, Women's March Canada is moving are moving from a march to a movement and we need your help in the development of the following programs: 

  • Elect Pro-Choice Progressive Women
  • National Postpartum Support
  • Women at the Executive Levels
  • Closing the Gender Pay Gap Nationally
  • Celebrating Women Entrepreneurs
  • Male Allies Stopping Violence Against Women
  • Ending Sexual Harassment at Work

We're gathering amazing women from across the country and beyond to help develop the above programs but we need help in financing the basics for the Women's March Canada website and social media tools. Please help by donating whatever you can!

    If in Canada and you are furious that the US is placing children in internment camps and violating both human rights and international law, sign the petition #EndFamilySeparation #KeepFamiliesTogetherAct #KeepFamiliesTogether

    End Family Separation

    For the sake of humanity, it’s time to act. This petition urges the Govenment of Canada speak up on behalf of your constituents in renouncing these actions and call on the UN to spare the children irreparable trauma.

    3,974 signatures

    Needless and Cruel

    "The administration's policy of separating children from their families as they attempt to cross into the United States without documentation is not only needless and cruel, it threatens the mental and physical health of both the children and their caregivers," the American Psychological Association said in a statement.

    Children are being ripped from their parents and housed in tent cities or caged in an abandoned Walmart. It is not only unconstitutional but a humanitarian crisis.

    What can we do outside the US?

    If in Canada and you are furious that the US is placing children in internment camps, essentially being used as political pawns, and violating both human rights and international law, here's how to take action:

    • sign this petition
    • visit our Facebook post above to:
      • learn how to contact your local MP: 
      • find what to say (many of our followers have shared what they've emailed to their local MPs); 
      • then tag your local MP in a comment on the post;
      • share and "like" the post with your friends on Facebook to spread the word.

    It takes less than 10 minutes to share your voice for these children. Please do so now.

    For the sake of humanity, it’s time to act. We, the undersigned citizens (or residents) of Canada draw attention to the House to the following that, the US Administration has directed its Homeland Security to send “100 percent of illegal southwest border crossings” to the US Justice Department to be prosecuted. When undocumented parents are criminally prosecuted, their children are automatically declared unaccompanied minors, detained and transferred into government custody—despite the fact that they have loving parents who desperately want to stay with them, parents who brought them to the United States in search of a better and safer life.

    Therefore, we call upon Parliament to renounce these actions, to call on the United Nations to demand that US immigration agencies stop the implementation of any policy that separates children and youth from their families, and that the US Administration enlist qualified social service agencies to ensure the well-being of children who are still in their custody, or have gone missing. We urge the Government of Canada to speak up on behalf of your constituents in renouncing these actions.

    We must show that world that #CanadaCares
